Tastemakers share tips on eating healthy while eating out in the New Year

SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- For many Americans, better health tops the New Year's resolution list. But for the thousands of foodies in San Francisco, eating healthy while eating out is not always easy. Today, American Express issued its Tastemaker Index and in it, Tastemakers dish on some of the best San Francisco restaurants where diners can get a fresh, healthy meal to help them keep that New Year's resolution. The Tastemaker Index is a monthly alert which provides an insider's look at the hottest restaurants recently dined at and talked about on American Express Dish(R) (http://www.amexnetwork.com/thedish). Dish is a community web site dedicated to connecting people who love to dine out.

The Tastemaker Index reveals the Top Restaurants for Healthy Dining. These rankings are based on the number of charges made by Tastemakers at restaurants.
